The Inner Court: Close-up of the Habit Body
The Inner Family - Inner Court is level two of the Fractal Psyche, a view of the inner child that is four times more precise and nuanced.
It uses a simple quadrant system, providing a close-up view of our “habit body,” the better, more timely, more accessible model of our unconscious.

This advanced topic builds on Your Habit Body, An Owner's Manual. Here, our Habit Body is shown to have four quadrants in two locations.
Our Fractal Psyche has many somewhat distinct logical levels. Taken altogether, all working in parallel, at various frequencies, they comprise what we call “thinking” and “living.”
The Inner Family-Court appears to be the most active level of our psyche.
The vast majority of this activity is not conscious, but sub- and unconscious. This activity predominates in our behavior to 90% or 95% depending on whose numbers you like.
Therefore, we can call the TWO Inner Courts taken together a kind of Inner Dashboard.
The vigorous activity of the multiple levels of our psyche is balanced by the 5% to 10% who exercises choice, judgment, evaluation and decision-making.
Our two quadrant systems were probably not possible to uncover until after NLP converged with muscle testing, around 1990. This gave us reliable experimental methods for the first time; if only primarily, in the domain of one person. The heavy lifting on this topic was done by Bertrand Babinet (Babinetics.com) who produced little writing on this topic.
The two quadrant systems are grounded in physiology. Using muscle testing, you can erect your own body-centric map of how you react-respond to life; as well,
where everyday disturbances originate and track back to. If you can feel it―you can locate it--and heal it.
The process for verifying and validating who is responding and how they are responding accelerates into a very manageable and teachable method.
The health and strength of each quadrant is easily assessed and measured with kinesiology testing, muscle testing, of any kind. These insights have been extensively tested by the author in client sessions since 2001. Insights gleaned from the Inner Court easily transfer to working with clients.
The quadrants of our Habit Body have distinct individual characters. Bertrand used the archetypes of Father, Mother, Child, Wise Accepting Grandparent. These support navigating to and between our invisible landmarks.
King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin can also serve as archetypal landmarks for navigating our reactivity and our subconscious role playing.
We use these four archetypal elements to navigate into and around the habit body to what is working and not, in our psyche.
The four archetypes, however termed, are the KEY ACTORS in our habit body, acting out preferences, memories, habits and behaviors. They are the “script writers,” script holders, and role-playing actors, “holding court” in our sub- and unconscious. They determine our habitual memories, habits, behaviors, routines and preferences.
Q: What’s left for ME to do?
A: YOU, the waking-conscious self, remain Director of this UNconscious "writers room" and acting company.
The Inner Family-Court is our Habit Body in a four-fold, close-up view. The Inner Family in the gut is a more exact, body-based, imagining of “inner child, four times more precise, four times as precise as Bradshaw’s unitary concept of the inner child.
The two Courts make the previously mysterious topics of self-esteem and self-concept more understandable.
The Inner Court makes obvious the strengths and weaknesses of many previous mysteries:
- The limitations of “right and left brain” are completed here in a quadrant system,
- Personality typology in general is clarified,
- The connection between neurotransmitter production and the Inner Court becomes clear,
- The classic Supporter, Promoter, Analyzer, Controller typologies,
- MBTI ideas of how personality is formed thru preferences,
- Aristotle’s & Rudolf Steiner's four Temperaments,
- The pioneering work of Ned Herrmann & Katherine Benziger is clarified and made more artistic.
The Inner Court model is appropriate to grad students and ANYONE interested in counseling, coaching, training, sales and personal growth. 116 p. 6x9”
